I was tagged in this post by Chubbychicsdiary and I absolutely L-O-V-E her blog. It’s almost like having a penpal. Yes, I am showing my age here. Who doesn’t remember having one in school & being so excited to learn about someone else’s life? Now onto the fun part.

The Questions

1. How many lipsticks do you own?

I have 17. It’s such a small collection, but even then it is taking forever to make my way through this stash.

2. What was your first ever lipstick?

When I was younger my first was the drugstore brand NYX. As I got older my first fancy lippie was from Estee Lauder. My wallet may have cried as a teenager, but I felt luxurious. (Sidenote: I grew up in a small town and there was no such thing as Sephora or MAC. *gasp*)

3. What is your most worn lipstick?

On a daily basis when I am in a rush I usually reach for one of my Tarte lipsticks if I am going for a nude or natural color. If I am feeling more adventureous then I usually gravitate towards Memebox.

4. What is your favorite brand for lipsticks?

I love my MAC lipstick so much that I don’t want to use it. I discovered it when I had my make-up done for graduation & I fell in love.

5. What is your favorite finish?

I love glossy, but I think my hubby makes it a mission to remove it from my lips so I usually just stick with matte.

6. What is the last lipstick you bought?

The last one I received was Vivito from the Soothing Sista X Memebox collaboration when I lucked out during a restock party so it has been a few months.

7. How many lip products do you currently have in your bag?

I usually carry whatever lipstick I’m currently wearing or my lip balm from Banila Co.

8. What lipstick do you use to rock a red lip?

I alternate between two. The first is from Etude House and you can catch the review I did here. The second is from Memebox. I was actually very surprised at the quality when I received these. They have a smooth application and are pretty long lasting.

9. How do you store your lipsticks?

I have my cute acrylic case & I make it work even though I think it was meant for nail polish.

10. What lip products are you currently lusting over?

I have been wanting to try the Berrisom My Lip Tint Pack. You apply it to your lips, wait, & then peel it off for lasting color! It looks like so much fun.

My First Memebox Box Party

Hello my dear SanSeoulites! I’m late to the game compared to many other beauty bloggers out there, but I have an unrequited love with Memebox. This week they had their Big Box Party aka RESTOCK TIME! If you have never heard of them let me give you the TLDR version. Pretty sure you will love them as much as I do once you give them a chance. Memebox curates Korean beauty boxes containing skincare & make up along with a shop for individual items or sets. They have both an international & U.S. shop based in California so if you order from the U.S. then your order will arrive very quickly. Since I live in the U.S. I had to stay awake until almost 3:00 am on a daily basis to attempt to snag one of these in the thirty seconds they will be available due to the quantity & the site itself crashing. Was I crazy for doing this? I’m not sure, but I was definitely exhausted by the time day three came around.

These are some of the boxes that I was hoping to pick up.

 The only night I was successful in purchasing boxes I wanted was the first night when boxes were restocked one by one before going “live” on their Box Party Page. I snagged a Soothingsista that I missed the first time & My Cute Wishlist 4. I was hoping that the first box from the My Cute Wishlist series would be restocked, but so far no such luck.

I’m excited to grow my k-beauty collection, & hopefully Memebox has another restock in the future. The big question lingers though….Would you swap your sanity for a restock?
